Another difficulty with phpbb forum





Da Rossa
Hi
I tried to install a forum again in my old domain (http://www.darossa.frih.net, I'm currently using http://notasdeaula.org hosted here at Fri.)

I uploaded the forum files to the public_html directory under domains/darossa.frih.net. Still, I can't access the forum instalation page (phpBB 3.0.6).

Yes, I created the database before all.

What is missing? (I'm using DirectAdmin).

Thanks!

You normally also need to execute some sql commands to generate the tables, it's probably in a file. It says that the config table cannot be found, so I assume the mysql tables aren't created yet.

But I did exactly like in the past, I mean, I went to MySQL management and created a new database and assigned a name to it. Then, I uploaded the forum files (or they were previously uploaded), then accessed the root directory. I never had to manually activate the tables by executing any sort of command. This would also be a little above my knowledgegrade...

Maybe you are used to phpBB2 (like this forum), while you are installing the much improved phpBB3.

Anyway, you need to go to the install directory. At least the first page seems to work fine.

Sorry, but what first page? You mean http://notasdeaula.org? But that has nothing to do with the forum, that's only a pure html page! Or do you mean the "first page that I have to access", which I suspect it's the phpbb installation page, that was supposed to be accessed via http://notasdeaula.org/forum (the forum root)?

Yes, I started using phpbb 2.0.x, but I have made a few tests along the past two years with 3.0.x and got fairly used to it. At least, the installation was not supposed to be a problem, which is, I get a SQL-based general error while trying to access http://notasdeaula.org/forum, so I can't begin the installation. Sad

I meant the page you get when you access the install directory. You need to go to http://notasdeaula.org/forum/install/ .

Thanks sir.
Perhaps I made a mistake and got confused with the SQL stuff. Now its working! Smile
